EDITIONS DE L’OBSERVEUR offers the opportunity to publish a book of an artist’s work. If you are looking for a publisher to turn your work into a publication this might be the opportunity you needed.


EDITIONS DE L’OBSERVEUR is a publishing house based in France. It has been created in 2019 by a team of photographers and designers in order to publish exciting projects related to light. It also publishes The Light Observer magazine.


EDITIONS DE L’OBSERVEUR is giving the winner of this #thelightobservercall 1st edition the opportunity of having their work published. All choices in terms of design, format, materials and printing techniques used for the publication will very much depend on the nature of the selected project. The number of copies printed can’t be established beforehand since it will depend on the nature of the work published, yet we undertake to publish a minimum of 300 copies. The artist can choose to talk about the topic of light using the medium of representation he/she prefers - painting, photography, illustration, writing, sculpture etc..


EDITIONS DE L’OBSERVEUR is a small and independent publisher. Despite financial limitations we are used to make quality publications and employ design choices that suits a project. We will cover the costs of designing, overlooking pre-press, printing, distributing and promoting the final publication, which will be published in 2020. The winner will also receive 10% of the total number of copies that will be printed.

The project will be under the supervision of Eleonora Paciullo who has worked with GOST Books, Witty Kiwi, Zatara Press and now develops projects for MAGNUM photographer Joan Fontcuberta.

All applicants must subscribe to The Light Observer magazine here for 25€ before submitting their application.
